Does anyone else have this problem when reason? It’s like you’re reason a sentence and then suddenly your eyes shift to a completely different sentence. It could be a sentence father ahead of the book or behind where u were. And then u have to find where u were again, and then your eyes do it again. This is why it takes me forever to read a page bc my eyes won’t focus.

Having a ruler / edge of paper under each line may help with this (something I was shown).

Incidentally beginning (about) then jump to end (result / conclusion) can be helpful. Can then give more focus to relevant bits ie related to end when ploughing through perhaps dense middle part.

All the time. If I’m in a manic episode then In the space of a 20 minute conversation I would have jumped to a million different topics! It’s completely draining

There's an App, NextDoor where neighbours ask for advice, because of all the distraction following interesting things rather than being on task can help a lot.

Suggesting as it is a way of handling the impulse as covers a lot of different areas, and can give ideas and make jokes too.

Don't know if you relate but "Everyone thinks I'm stupid" caused a lot of pain and frustration. Get the opposite response from NextDoor.
